Micro Soft Edge vs IE 11 ... another... dang-it!
« on: February 16, 2020, 07:58 PM »
Hey Y'all,

Just venting a little.  Sure gonna miss Internet Explorer (11).  That was my main browser.
But support is near gone for it.  Just like for, Windows 7.  Lots of sites are noting that they
are no longer now, and recommend changing browsers.

For years I have had secondary, back-up browsers installed.  But, just preferred IE.  Never
was much of a fan of Google Chrome.  And, Micro Soft Edge, seems to be a knock-off of it.

If you've tried MS-Edge, or use it... what do you think of it?  Or do you prefer a different
browser instead?

Best wishes to all.

I use MS Internet Explorer 11 for many things (like SGW). But I also use Chrome and Firefox for many other things. I suspect IE will continue to work fine for quite some time, maybe years. If not, then I'll probably switch to Chrome for those things. I've never heard of MS Edge; maybe I'll give it a try (if I need to). I'm still using Windows 7 and, like IE, I suspect it will continue to work just fine. No Windows Updates/virus patches, etc. though. I haven't downloaded those for ages anyway. I just rely on my antivirus program (free version of AVG) and an anti malware program.

I've made the jump to Chrome, but do use Edge as a backup as some sites I go to don't work all the time with Chrome. At work, many of our internal sites don't work with MS, so we are using Chrome more as a standard as well.

Thanks for the input guys.

For those who have not heard of Microsoft Edge (the alleged replacement for IE).
You may visit the official site via the following link.

Windows 7, is also my os. And I also use the free version of AVG (and paid-for VPN at times).
